The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Blues are keen on signing the 19-year-old attacking midfielder as they begin to turn their attentions towards possible recruits for the summer transfer window.
The teenager is currently on loan to Inter Milan and he has been earning plenty of praise for his strong performances for the Italian club in recent weeks.
He has scored one goal in seven Serie A appearances for the Italian side so far this season and his progress has apparently not gone unnoticed at both Stamford Bridge and the Camp Nou.
The teenager joined Inter on a two-year loan deal at the start of this season and the Italian side are obliged to buy him at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.
However, it is claimed in the same story that the current deal will not put off Chelsea FC or FC Barcelona, who are both said to be “keen” on securing the teenager’s signature.
Chelsea FC are aiming to bolster their squad in the summer transfer window as they bid to try and challenge for the Premier League title once again next season.
